FedEx Worker Froze To Death Outside Illinois Delivery Hub

New York Post:–  A FedEx worker froze to death outside an Illinois delivery hub this week as a polar vortex plunged the region into sub-zero temperatures, according to a new report.

William L. Murphy, 69, was found dead at FedEx Freight in East Moline on Thursday morning, Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson told local TV station WQAD.

Another worker found Murphy’s body between two tractor-trailers, Capt. Darren Gault of the East Moline Police Department told the outlet.

Authorities weren’t sure how long Murphy had been there before the discovery.

Gault said there were no signs of foul play and that the weather played a role in Murphy’s death. Temperatures in the region dipped as low as negative 33 degrees that morning.

The exact cause of death will be determined following an autopsy scheduled for Monday.

Authorities were using security cameras around the facility to aid in their investigation, according to the report.
